Top Abraham Lincoln Quotes
  • With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan - to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations
  • A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved - I do not expect the house to fall - but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.
  • Character is like a tree and reputation is like a shadow, the shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
  • Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.
  • I am a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn't have the heart to let him down
  • Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.
  • Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
  • As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy.
  • Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
  • Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves.
  • Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
  • Always bear in mind, that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.
  • Quarrel not at all. No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention.
  • Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.
  • It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong.
  • We know nothing of what will happen in the future, but in the analogy of experience.
  • I do the very best I know how-the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
  • There is an important sense in which government is distinctive from administration. One is perpetual, the other is temporary and changeable. A man may be loyal to his government and yet oppose the particular principles and methods of administration.
  • I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
  • It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
  • Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.
  • It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.
  • You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
  • You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
  • Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
  • Force is all-conquering, but its victories are short-lived.
  • I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
  • If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.
  • Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
  • Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
  • Common looking people are the best in the world: that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them.
  • If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax.
  • Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.
  • Reputation is like fine china once broken it's very hard to repair.
  • We can complain that rose bushes have thorns, or we can rejoice that thorn bushes have roses.
  • To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men
  • Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.
  • I have never studied the art of paying compliments to women; but I must say that if all that has been said by orators and poets since the creation of the world in praise of women were applied to the women of America, it would not do them justice for their conduct during this war. I will close by saying, God bless the women of America!
  • There are no accidents in my philosophy. Every effect must have its cause. The past is the cause of the present, and the present will be the cause of the future. All these are links in the endless chain stretching from the finite to the infinite


Color of Lincoln is reviewed in the Spring, 2009 issue of the "Lincoln Forum Bulletin"

"Color of Lincoln" by Bryan Eaton and Lee Rizio with photographs by Bryan Eaton.. does for 19th century photographs what TedTurner -sponsored colorization did for classic movies : adds vivid tinting to the fuzzy black- and- white prints of Lincoln's own era. What emerges is a startlingly new portrayal of the 16th president, bound to stir emotion and even controversy . Historian James Cornelius called the result "an excellent example of an 'a-ha!' moment of invention .. why didn't someone think of this sooner?"
